15th International
Workshop on

The 2014 Multi-Agent-Based Simulation (MABS) workshop is the fifteenth of a series that began in 1998. Its scientific focus lies in the confluence of social sciences and multi-agent systems, with a strong application/empirical vein, and its emphasis is stressed on (i) exploratory agent based simulation as a principled way of undertaking scientific research in the social sciences and (ii) using social theories as an inspiration to new frameworks and developments in multi-agent systems.

The excellent quality level of this workshop has been recognized since its inception and its proceedings have been regularly published in Springer's Lecture Notes series. MABS 2014 will be hosted at AAMAS 2014, the 13th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, which will take place in Paris, France, on May 5th-9th, 2014.

The MABS workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in MAS engineering, with those focused on finding efficient solutions to model complex social systems, in such areas as economics, management, organizational and social sciences.

In all these areas, agent theories, metaphors, models, analysis, experimental designs, empirical studies, and methodological principles, all converge into simulation as a way of achieving explanations and predictions, exploration and testing of hypotheses, better designs and systems.
